Steve,

why did you choose a GPL license for the matroska project on sourceforge.net
?

Shouldnt we come back to the original statement here, being to create a
special license to cover

- specs ( BSD style, but copyrighted and with certain restrictions about
format derivates )
- libraries ( L-GPL type )
- use of logos ?

The GPL type we have chosen now may be misleading for companies interested
in implementing matroska, either on their own or using our libs. I know you
ment this license mainly for the libs, but cant this confuse people ?
